A Delaware County man has been arrested for stalking CBS3 anchor Erika von Tiehl, according to police sources.

John Hart, 35, was taken in to custody last night in Havertown, where he lives, according to police.

A source said Erika von Tiehl filed a complaint against Hart, but the nature of the allegations have not yet been released.

CBS3 spokeswoman Joanne Calabria confirmed that the station was aware of the allegations.

"It's a private matter and beyond that, we're not going to make any comment," Calabria said.

Von Tiehl may not have been the only person Hart was stalking. Police are continuing their investigations into Hart because, according to one source, Hart was "clearly" following more than one person.

Von Tiehl co-anchors the CBS3 morning news with Ukee Washington.
